Plot: Princess Andromeda is the daughter of King Cepheus, who has gained a victory against the gods. The vengeful god of the underworld, Hades, demands that Andromeda is offered as a sacrifice or he will unleash the Kraken against Argos. A desperate King Cepheus asks demi-god Perseus to find a way to defeat the Kraken. Perseus accepts the challenge because Hades was responsible for his family's death. He discovers that the way to kill the Kraken lies with getting the head of the gorgon Medusa. Runtime: 106 mins Release Date: 01 Apr 2010
Several parents at my son's school have decided to sponsor an after-prom trip for our sons and daughters to see this movie as a group. I'm really looking forward to comparing this version to the original version. The original is still a classic and one of the most recognized lines "release the kraken has now resurfaced as a playful reminder that something big and strong lays deep within to be released should you not listen to the rules within the family. All of the scenes of lore are ready for a new generation of creative minds. It makes me happy to be able to share certain <more>
phrases and moments from the original and not have my kids looking at me saying what is a "kracken"?This movie is the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. The theme involves saving the family, understanding, facing and combating superhuman fears. The journey and sub journeys are captivating and brilliantly put together. I am constantly teaching, training and coaching my family and peers about the dangers of peer pressure and I reference old text, wise men, Aesop's fables and clash of the titans as the final word. Why? because of the ability to communicate the importance of leadership and leadership skills. Like most films of great cast and character this new version gets 3 thumbs up? [email protected]
Unpredictable--not your typical story (by jose_mar69)
I absolutely loved that this was not the typical hero-gets-the-princess movie. The original movie had its charm, but I always thought it was a bit too cheesy that Perseus got mostly into all that trouble just to get his beloved Andromeda.I really enjoyed this remake and appreciated that the script was updated. The story no longer follows the fairytale formula. The hero wasn't fighting because he had fell in love with the princess. Nope. He had deeper motives for fighting. He was in deep pain and wanted revenge. Not because he couldn't resist Andromeda's beauty. Plus, it was a <more>
great twist for the story that there was different love interest for Perseus.
i saw the movie today...n boy was i happy ! seriously...the movie was well directed by Louis leterrier...and when it comes to acting, we all know the potential of Sam Worthington and Liam neeson...this movie also made me see the soft version of Gemma arterton...and she looked amazing as she looked in PRINCE OF PERSIA:The sands of Time...the movie although dint concentrate much about the prophesy told by the witches..but it had all the essential action segments with a blend of emotional touch right from the word go.The concept of 3d in this movie had an issue but its flaws were covered when <more>
Kraken was revealed.But i got to tell u..the movie had a pinch of everything it requires...So all in all the movie was great and definitely worth watching !i rate it 8/10 !
Clash of the TItans: Everything I expected and it was great! (by sonikbaby2000)
I don't know what all the critics are smoking, but Clash of the Titans is a great fantasy movie! Now some of the mythology was changed and it doesn't have some deep life changing plot, no, but that isn't what I came to the movie to see. I am a huge fantasy fan and this movie delivered exactly what I wanted: epic weapons, great fight scenes, amazing monsters, gods, creatures and beautiful women.Overall I was satisfied with the acting and dialog. Sam Worthington is a good actor and really made his character engaging and fun to watch and I felt he really fit the role well. The dialog <more>
was also on par. None of it was cringe inducing which is very common in most Hollywood block busters. Even Avatar, which is also a great fantasy, had some pretty cringe inducing lines in it.The plot was straight to the point. I was a little disappointed that they didn't use the original plot twist of Perseus being prophesied about killing his mothers father, the king, and the king killing both daughter and son to try to prevent the prophecy, inadvertently making the prophecy come true. But I suppose they changed it to streamline the plot for a two hour action movie. What they replaced it with was sufficient, I didn't feel too 'cheated'.Now the monsters and creatures are what I came to the movie to see and they did not let down! Zeus is amazing looking in his sparkling armor : , Pegasus was beautiful and I can only wish I could ride it, Olympus is magical and I will dream about hanging out there with the rest of the gods and the Kraken is ungodly HUGE and just awesome. I only wish the fight scene was a bit longer with him cause he was just soo imposing I'd like to see more. My favorite creatures has to be the charred wood un-human desert Gin people. They were just cool looking and I would like to meet one : that was fantasy is all about right? to fantasize? I saw the movie in 3d and overall I didn't think it added that much to the movie. It actually would of been better in 2d as I could see the detail of the CGI better. But, I'll rent this movie on DVD to catch more of that later. So save yourself the $5 and watch it in 2d.If you are a fantasy fan this movie is a definite see. I went with a group of friends and they all agreed the movie was great too. So I wouldn't listen to the stupid critics. Go watch it!
Perhaps the worst thing any of us movie lovers can surrender to is blind trust in film critics. I have always wondered from what dark tank in hell do these mostly men, for some bizarre reason so called critics emerge? Very few that I have read appear to have ever set foot on a set much less partaken of one shoot in the production process, for they often irresponsibly toss off extraordinary efforts and artistic triumphs with great expense in blood, sweat, tears and resources as one would pick out an overdone piece of popcorn and toss it.Thus, having read several critics on the new milling of <more>
Clash of the Titans and remembering quite well the awful Second Avenue-second hand budget of the 1981 rendition with its stop motion animated puppets, I dragged myself to the theaterÂ…with it in mind that I would once again have to hear Liam Neeson shout, "Release the Kraken," after wincing from a dozen or so trailers that followed my favorite news programs on TV.What I experienced was stunning production values crowned by brilliant Homeric design and art work even to the minutest detail in both sets and costume. There was so much detail that even some of the men's hairstyles were impressive Sam Worthington â€“ Perseus' - "do" notwithstanding . In this marvelous production was one instance where I expected nothing and got everything. The very fine cast is icing on the cake.As an old fan of Greek mythology I found myself highly rewarded. However, while the script simply nods at the original tales of Perseus and Andromeda there is so much good action here in a strong plot, and done so stylishly that one quickly leaves the original mythology in the vest pocket, perhaps where it really belongs.
Intellectual, Inspiring, and passionate film-making ! (by Dragonsouls)
I want to review this film by comparing it to the original and as a film on it's own. As a kid, I watched the original on HBO over and over because it was the most mesmerizing thing on TV at the time. Even Star Wars didn't immerse me into the mythological world like Clash of the Titans. After seeing this re-make last night, I could honestly say that this film is going to stand the test of time and eventually become a cult classic like the original.I left the theater with goosebumps and still have them as I write this review and think about the film. Now I'm not the type of casual <more>
movie fan that enjoys everything with great CGI and pretty actors like Pirates of the Caribbean, the Mummy 3, or other mindless swash-buckling adventures.Clash of the Titans is not that kind of movie. I'll even go as far as saying it is superior to the original. The reason is that the producers of this film were very passionate about it and put lots of love into the making of this film. Being a lover of old mythology myself, I was really inspired by this film and was surprised to see such a smart, metaphorical, religious and inspiring movie. It never gets boring like Lord of the Rings did at times. There is always something happening to keep you on the Edge. The choreographed fight scenes were pretty good, and there was lots of wire work which was pleasing to see. At times, the movie felt like a God of War video game with a boss fight at the end of every scene! The main character really grows with each minute and you care about him in the end.Now as for the acting, well, top-notch all around. What do you expect with such talent on the screen by the leads and supporting actors. Sam Worthington is no joke, he's going to be a bigger star than he already is, and on a side note; I find it odd he always plays a character that is half human. Lliam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes are imposing as the Mighty brothers Zeus and Hades and look very similar in appearance. I think they really are a match made in heaven; No pun intended I wish they had more screen time, better yet, I wish the film was longer in general! Now the directing; excellent! Paced very well. Louis Leterrier has a new fan. He really has the promise to be the next Ridley Scott! Too bad this was a big budget B movie, and if he had more funding, this film could have been as Epic as Lord of the Rings or even the Ten Commandments and Ben Hur. It really reminded me of all those films, it reaped quality.The sets were epic! A true old fashioned film in every sense. Fans of the original might find a surprise in this film in the shape of a stop-motion, metallic bird! That's all I'm going to say! Finally, the soundtrack impressed as well and featured such beautiful music! I can't remember the last time I purchased a soundtrack not made by Hans Zimmer or Danny Elfman. I am buying the soundtrack for sure.Summary: 9/10 A film with great acting, directing, music, sets, CGI, plot and characters. Oh and I didn't mention the Pegasus! Wow !
People who went in to this movie expecting an accurate depiction of Greek mythology and/or an accurate remake of the original Clash should have paid more attention to the previews. First off, the original movie wasn't even correct with regards to the mythology. Yes, it was much closer than this rendition, but given that the whole story of Perseus and Medusa were never really quite "on" in either case, I don't see how deviation from the original Greek myths is a fair argument against this movie.Clash 2010 promised to be an action/adventure set in the world of the Greek myths <more>
- and it delivered. It was fun, fresh, and to be honest, I thought Sam Worthington did just fine as Perseus. Let's face it - the guy Perseus was never a "deep" character to begin with, and Worthington did a hell of a lot more with his character than Hamlin ever did.The "new" stories they created with these characters, while not to be taken seriously or as a replacement of their correct myths, were still enjoyable. In fact, I really rather liked it - some differences were so far off that they don't even count as "inconsistencies," but rather complete rewrites. And given that, the rewrites were okay - I preferred the love interest in this scenario over the first movie, even though correct Greek mythology says "WHAT?" to it. Kind of a big obvious sign that one should not be taking this movie as a serious depiction. Anyway, it was fun to squint and be like, "that's... not.... okay, I'm hitting Wikipedia when I get home." Because then I got to refresh my memory on why I loved Greek mythology so much as a child in the first place.I didn't feel the 3D experience was really necessary, although I'd have to see it in 2D to tell for certain if it added much. The effect itself wasn't huge, but maybe it added to the overall visual crispness of the movie. But really you could probably get away with seeing it in 2D and not miss much, whereas Avatar and Alice In Wonderland really made lovely use of the medium and "should be" seen in 3D.Overall, while I wouldn't call it a masterpiece, as a big fan of the original movie I wasn't at all offended or disappointed, mainly because I wasn't expecting a perfect remake. Sure, when the trailers first came out I was hopeful, but after seeing enough previews it became clear it was going to be a bit different. Oh well, now we have two fun Clash of the Titans movies.All in all, "It didn't suck," and it should be seen on the big screen.
For better or for worse, this movie is a kick (by dave-847)
Most people, yours truly included, usually approach writing a review of a movie as a chance to rip it. Finding faults with historical misrepresentations, factual blunders, inept acting or direction, even criticizing the composer of the soundtrack for a less than stellar score. This review is different. While I have read some of these criticisms about this movie, I personally do not think that any of them apply.This movie is, above all things, great fun.Anyone who watched the Harry Hamlin version of this story back in 1981 and wants to compare it with this one would do well to remember the <more>
differences in cast and production capabilities. The special effects for this new trip with Perseus are excellent. The creativeness and production values are way up there on the scale. And, while the dialog may occasionally slip into the region of corn and cheesiness, the story flows in an entertaining manner and doesn't leave the viewer wanting for much.Probably the only real criticism I had was regarding the Kraken. Yes, it was fearsome, ginormous, loud and, in general, everything you expect a mythical monster of mass destruction to be. But you never get to see a complete picture of it. OK. I'm picky. So sue me.So grab your popcorn, Jujubes, sodas and hot dogs and sit down for a rousing and action-packed movie. And if you think about Harry Hamlin even once while you're watching it then I hope you spill your hot buttered popcorn all over the furniture.
As close to a 'God of War' movie as we're gonna get (by michaelthonger)
Having seen the original film, I would like to counter most of the criticisms being levelled at the remake by stating that the original has NOT aged well. 60% of the performances are ridiculous borderline laughable and the special effects, although cool, cannot possibly be taken seriously. When I went to see this, I expected a fun hack'n'slash creature feature, and I must admit even though I can be a bit of a cinema snob I enjoyed the hell out of this. It never tried to be anything it's not it's far from being the next Lord of the Rings , but instead it revelled in ever <more>
